Safer Internet Day 2024

Safer Internet Day 2024 was celebrated around the world on February 7th. The theme is, 'Inspiring change? Making a difference, managing influence and navigating change online'


As part of the activities we explored the most commonly used apps and some safety tips for these are listed below. We also asked children about what they wanted to see improve on the internet and teachers then created a display in school, which we hope to share on this page shortly! 



Talking to your children about Online Safety


Many parents and carers worry about their children staying safe when using technology. Research shows that one of the best ways to keep them safe is to talk to children about the technology they use, when they are using it. But knowing how to talk to children about technology can be challenging.


This blog sets out five tips for talking to children of all ages about their technology use. These are:

1) Play games together

2) Read together

3) Explore the online world together

4) Watch shows and films online together

5) Laugh together
